It seems that Spotify are changing the method of delivery of their service, and one of the casualties is Squeezebox support.
As of 20th July Spotify will not play on Squeezeboxes.
I have just cancelled my subscription - there's no point in paying for a service that won't integrate with my server.

Thankfully one of the code writers on the Slim Devices forum had things in hand, and has been working on a new player script, so there is a work around.
Bad news for my NAS server is that it won't run the script, but is does run on RasPi, so there's a server work around on the horizon.

Although I don't run Spotify through my Squeezebox at the moment I was considering it as an option so it's a relief to know you are ahead of the game. Thanks Chris.
